I help organizations and women changemakers understand, harness, and utilize the power of transformative service.


I help women connect to their why and cultivate their servant-centered selves.

The purpose of Connecting the Cause is very simple. We help women hone in on their calling, give them the confidence to make a difference as a changemaker, and empower them to put action behind their why. Through uniquely crafted resources, we push women to go deep, so they are able to align their servant-centered purpose with effective change. Through the use of tailored strategies, I am dedicated to preparing your heart, mind, and actions and using them to help develop your community. It is my goal that you are transformed through connecting to your cause.

I help organizations keep community at the center of service.

Nonprofits and service organizations must effectively partner in tandem with the community they serve. All programs, services, and volunteer opportunities must create a safe space where dignity is upheld and the community is supported and not harmed. Many times that goal is derailed due to volunteer training and orientation challenges, lack of clear goals, and overall disconnection from the community being served. My expertise and passion is helping organizations and volunteer groups develop unique and tailored practices that foster transformative experiences for both them and the community.
